Slow cooked Country Ribs
1 pound pork loin country ribs
seasoning mix: salt, pepper, garlic powder, chilly powder, chili flakes, oregano
1/3 cp apple cider vinegar (or apple juice)
Kraft Carb Smart BBQ sauce mixed with splenda brown sugar and garlic powder
Country ribs are typical something in the middle between pork chops and baby back ribs. They have more meat than ribs, but not as much as pork chops. Remove all visible fat, and season the ribs on all sides with the spice mix. Place ribs into a roasting pan and add the apple cider vinegar. I fit mine into a pan for a toaster oven (3 larger ribs, 3 portions).
Covered tightly with aluminum foil and cooked at 325 for 45 mins. Turned over in pan and put back in oven for another 45 mins. At end of 2nd 45 minutes - turned again and brushed lightly with BBQ sauce, covered with the foil and back in the oven again for 30 mins. Turned over and brushed other side with sauce, left uncovered back in oven (this time at 350) for another 30 minutes.
